Armageddon Pantry Part 2
A while back I posted about the stockpiles of food and other items that I have been putting into our pump house. It really isn't that I think the end of the world is coming, but hey... why not be prepared. We go to Costco and purchase in bulk. It cost much less to purchase in bulk, by the case lot.
Because we live in a rural area and often in the winter there is snow, it is so handy to go out to the well house and pull some staple or even a luxury like liquor or wine off the shelf.
When I use something from the pump house, we replace it so the stock is always the same. The pump house stays basically the same temperature year round because it is a block building that is well insulated and sided. In the winter the temp is about 40 -45 degrees. In the hot summers the cool water from the well keeps the temp in th 50 degree range. Our well water is very very cold, even in the summer.
